Truly Splendid!

Yeaaaaah, 2 posts in one day!!!
I figure you lucious critters deserve a double dose of Helga today!
I was up and at it early today!
On the road out to Rangoon by 8:10am!!
Jaysus, I hear you say, WTF was the hurry?!
The Rangiora Musical Society was having a wardrobe sale, that's what!
And what do we say to that?!
We say SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
The last one I went to, must have been 2010, was brillant and I came home with loads of goodies!
So when the irritatingly good looking Max told me there was one happening today, I was pretty much foaming at the mouth.
Ring a ding ding!
From, left to right:
 Vix , Sue ,Vix and Kitty 
And yay, Vanessa was also foaming at the mouth to get there!!!
We were talking to a sweet old lady out in the carpark; she was a tailoress by trade, and the 50's were her era.....our ears pricked up.....and she has all these 50's patterns....and 50's frocks......and.......argh!
I swear, we would have licked her shoes to have a chance at a gander at her goodies.
Not her goodies, you dirty tramps, her goodies!
Anyway, I got her to take a pic of us, and she promptly cut off the top of my head....ha!
Nice shadow there, too!
Hey, if she's gonna take a pic for me, I'm not complaining!
There were some fabulous garments just waiting for us!
And surprisingly few other shoppers!
We don't think it was advertised all that well.
That's just....such a shame.....ha ha haaaaaaaa!
Max and her darling little Claude, who has the most succulent lips!
I strongly recommend that child be locked up when she reaches her teens, those lips are far too tempting!
Here is my loot.
The greeny blue lurex number (centre) fits like a wet dream and I am going to wear it to band practice tonight.....thank you, Vanessa!
(She ever so sweetly passed it my way. I do love her generous spirit, one of the most genuine peeps I have ever met!)
Pretty much everything I picked up is a raging success, and the few that weren't I will be able to do something glorious with, I'm sure!
Ah, the excitement has worn me out all over again....I'm too old for all this excitement!
BaHAHAHAHA!
And, best of all, I have a little bit of excitement sorted for you lot, with the help of Vanessa, for when I am away in Australia with Sarah in 6 sleeps!
But you will just have to wait until next Friday to find out about that.....

Oh SHUT UP ALREADY WOMAN!!!! Too bloody much good shit going on here today!! I couldn't go to garage sales this week as the weather is so bad, so I'm horribly jealous of your haul!! Even though I bought 160 maxis last week...well too much is NEVER enough, is it?! Also spewing I can't come and meet you and Sarah :( We'll have to sort a threesome next time, eh?

Looks like you scored some good loot. I got your email about the sale but I just got back from Wellington where I spent lots of money so I refrained.
You and Vanessa look gorgeous as always. You look quite matchy both wearing blue and red.

That first pic of you is gorgeous. Woo hoo!

Do all bloggers like white tights? Is it a blogger thing? I love them too. I also love a good shoe/tight shot.

I am sick with jealousy at the sale you went to. What were the prices like?

Oohh.. oohh... you are going to be in Aus? I think Sarah is in a different state to me. :(

pastcaring said...

Oh oh oh, too much loveliness!
I am sorely tempted to be very cross with you lot for getting together and having vintage fun WITHOUT ME. But I love you so I can't be mad with you! And I won Vanessa's giveaway, so I certainly can't be mad with her, she's far too adorable. And look at gorgeous Max, a fellow South Yorkshire girl, and beautiful Miss Claud. I bet you had a fab day.
You look marvellous in those sunnies and headpiece, and I can't wait to see your scores. xxxxxxx
